Rink Facility Electricity Rates

Year: 2020

Number: 20-20A

Department: SaskPower

WHEREAS rinks are the hubs in Saskatchewan communities, providing a place to exercise as well as to socialize;

WHEREAS the social benefits of providing activities for our youth and a gathering place for everyone are incalculable;

WHEREAS balancing the costs to operate rink facilities while charging fees that are affordable to people is difficult for our communities;

WHEREAS SaskPower charges rink facilities their business standard rate for electricity, which is designed for profit;

WHEREAS the business standard rate puts an unfair burden on our rink facilities, which are not-for-profit;

WHEREAS SaskPower is a Crown corporation of the Province of Saskatchewan;

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby SaskPower and the Minister Responsible for SaskPower to recognize the not-for-profit nature of community rinks and the value that they provide by offering a reduced electrical rate for all rink facilities or offsetting electricity costs through a grant program.
